Three months ago the press was full of speculation that what passes for America’s smaller-government party was on the ropes, a bunch of tired old white men who could never win again, since they’re not well liked by a bunch of illegal immigrants who can’t vote. (It’s the mainstream press; it doesn’t have to make any SENSE.)
Then, in their exuberance, the Democrats figured “We’re on a roll — it’s time to try more gun control!”
It’s never pretty.
Barack Hussein Obama, guarded every minute by more than a dozen professional gunmen, has announced he wants to ban civilian possession of semi-automatic “assault weapons” and future production of full-sized ammunition magazines exceeding 10 rounds. He also wants universal background checks for gun purchases and “tougher federal laws against gun trafficking,” the AP explains.
